If you want to harvest big, you need to feed your plants right. And when it comes to cannabis nutrients, you’ve got a lot of options.
Luckily, managing air circulation is easy; just invest in some fans to keep air steadily moving throughout your grow space. Below are three fans you can use for your grow room:
• Homemade pots: If you’re growing on a budget, you can make your own pots out of buckets, bins, or other similar containers. If you’re growing indoors, we generally recommend using containers of about 10l. Outdoors, you’ll want to use larger containers (20l or more), especially if you’re only growing a few plants. Whatever container you use, always remember to drill drainage holes in the bottom.
To grow the best weed indoors, you need to have complete control over your plants’ environment. Two of the most important variables are temperature and humidity, so you’ll want to monitor both of these closely using a thermometer/hygrometer.

This Blue Thai plant was able to produce big yields even though it was ready to harvest just 60 days after it started making buds. This quick flowering time combined with huge yields is only possible because of its fabulous genetics!
It’s often worth it to choose a particular strain that best fit your needs. Being able to choose your strain gives you a lot of power over the final effects! That being said, some great buds have been grown from mystery seeds.
Honestly, if you really want to get the biggest yields indoors, the best thing you can do is get the best possible light setup for your grow space.
I hope that helps you as much as it would have helped me when I started growing!
I’ve created a complete guide to harvesting, drying and curing your weed but here’s the long and short of it:
Wait until the buds on your plants stop growing new white “hairs” (pistils). At this point you probably still have a few weeks left. When 90% of the pistils have darkened and started curling in, your buds should be fat and ready for harvest. You can get even more accurate results by looking at the glittery “trichomes” on the buds under a magnifier, as these turn cloudy white when the buds have reached their highest potency!
These plants were grown together from seed in the same environment. One yielded 6 ounces, the other yielded 9 ounces. Genetics makes a huge difference! Now imagine if they had been grown in different setups with different grow styles. Advice that works for one plant might not be good advice for the other!
Great airflow also prevents the bud killer known as bud rot and even helps prevent some types of bugs from attacking your plants.
